I'm 12 weeks pregnant. I was FINE before I got pregnant. Now ALL HECK has broken loose... LITERALLY! I have a permanent abode on the camode. I have internal hemmies that are bleeding like the dickens. My bowels wake me up ALL NIGHT long. I had a round of fevers in conjunction with my violent bowel movements last night. Most of the time all that I pass is little tiny pellets of mucus and blood, so it's not exactly "gratifying" trips to the toilet here... but the urgency and spasms are unreal! AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Why can't I just be constipated like EVERY OTHER pregnant woman on the planet!!!!???!!!!
"Call my GI" people will tell me. My GI is USELESS. He put me on anti-depressants without telling me that they were anti-depressants. Talk about
destroying the doctor-patient relationship!
A new GI will not want to deal with me because I am pregnant. Either that, or he'll want to put me on Prednisone, which I really think WOULD put me over the edge right now. Not to mention the fact that I want nothing to do with Prednisone when I'm NOT pregnant, let alone when I have another little human inside me to be exposed to that evil crap. (Yes, I realize it is a necessary evil for some because it really helps, but I am not one of those people... hopefully some of you know what I mean and the rest won't be offended).
I have a call into a local "CAM" doctor... some sort of experimental/alternative type guy... but I had to leave a message. Hopefully he can help? I'm REALLY hoping that he'll be willing to prescribe LDN. If not that... maybe he can run some type of stool sample to see what the heck is going on down there...
Sorry to dump on you guys... but you know how it is... some days you just want to flush yourself down the toilet along with all the crap! It's just one of those days. Being hormonal doesn't help. My poor husband has no clue what to do with me right now because I never get like this.
I just want to have a healthy baby. If I keep spiraling out of control at the rate I'm going, I don't know if that will be possible! Wish me luck with the new doc... hopefully he will call back soon...

all of 'em!
Digestive enzymes, and probiotics only.
And, I'm pregnant with my first baby! Due around Valentine's Day.
